“Beautiful hotel just around corner of Seminyak center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2011

My husband and I stayed at Mutiara for 5 nights. We had booked shortly before and checked lots of reviews of hotels on Tripadvisor and based on the good reviews of Mutiara, we chose to book there.
We were certainly not disappointed! We wanted a superior room, but they were full, so they gave us a deluxe room for the price of a superior room. Great service! Our room had an outside bathroom, which was really nice! The room was clean and big.
The pool area is beautiful, with frangipani trees, a jacuzzi and enough deck chairs to relax.

The hotel is a 5 minute walk to the center of Seminyak and a 10 minute walk to the beach. We had a massage and that was great as well.

Breakfast is very good. You can choose between American, continental, Irish, Indonesian, etc. Much better than a buffet where lots of food goes to waste.

Free wifi is available everywhere around the hotel. Free transport to and from the airport.


This is a really great hotel with a great value for money! If we were to ever go to Seminyak again, we would choose this hotel immediately again.

My Husband and I stayed at the Mutiara in February this year. We booked a Villa which had a private pool - so worth it - it wasn't much more than booking one of the apartment rooms. The room was comfortable - bed was ok, the bathroom was an outdoors type bathroom which was great. It had a kitchenette and came with 6 free drinks in the fridge. They had free wifi - which should be in all hotels these days - it wasn't in the Intercontinental Jimbaran - you had to pay - how behind the times are they! Breakfast was passable. We ordered in room dining which was good. It was lovely to come back to the villa after walking the streets shopping to jump into your own private pool. Just don't brush your teeth with the water from the taps because my husband ended up with Guardia - he was sick for 5 days and had to get antibiotics. The Villa cost us $99 a night including breakfast, transfers, and wifi. Good value and quite a good location.

I booked 3 to a room and they pre-prepare the room with extra bed, towels, chairs all for 3 pax. The landscaping near the pool was admirable.

You need to order your breakfast, I think it is a great way. Unlike buffet where food goes to waste.

The room we stayed was at the corner, near a high wall, I will not recommend that as the air ventilation in limited in the area. Unfortunately, there were no other rooms we can change to. We slept soundly, mosquitos are not that bad.

Deluxe rooms comes with a HUGE bathroom... bring all the stuff and you can have your own bubble bath...

The setback - SPA is not good! You can go for the massage but not the scrub. For scrub, they just apply on your body, let it dry for 20 minutes and then come and just rub a little to take it out - that's about it. Quite dissappointed.

All in, we had a great stay in Mutiara Bali!!!

I found it difficult to find Seminyak accommodation in our price range, and was delighted to get a last minute deal at Mutiara for approx $67 USD a night. The hotel was a lot classier than we expected for that low price! Clean fresh white linen was a nice change from our usual budget Bali haunts. Upstairs room with balcony was perfect for our needs and the hotel itself was quiet, with a lovely pool and open air gym. Breakfast cooked to order from a menu was included and was a great way to start the day. Hotel was only a short walk to the "Eat Street" restaurant strip, but I was glad we had a torch for the walk home along the unlit narrow back streets.
Tea and coffee making facilities were in the room, but only two sachets of each were supplied per day. Wifi didn't work for the last two days of our stay which was frustrating.
The hotel wasn't forthcoming about its services, so I had a quick read on previous reviews and learnt that the hotel would drop you off to places within Seminyak. We would get a lift to Bintang Supermarket and then walk back. Mutiara dropped us at the airport for our flight home.
We enjoyed our stay and will definitely return to this lovely hotel.

We stayed at Mutiara Bali for 4 nights in a standard room, for the low price we thought it was a great choice. Its location is ideal for walking to Seminyak Square and for visiting local Restaurants and Bars. The accommodation is nice, clean and quiet and the pool was also very nice (no swim up bar, which we liked) . The breakfast was basic but fresh. Overall it was a lovely start to our holiday and the friendly & kind Staff had a lot to do with this. We will definitely stay at Mutiara Bali again but maybe next time we will try a villa.

My wife and I stayed for three nights at Mutiara Bali Boutique in Seminyak. Mutiara means "pearl" in Indonesian. At night the pool area resembles a bright jewel among the rural-dark roads and scores of small boutique hotel-fronts in the surrounding area. It is the main view of most of the rooms and the focal point of the hotel section of the complex. There is also a villa section with walled compounds, each with private pool. We booked a deluxe room on the ground floor, set back from the pool. The rooms on the second floor appear to be smaller "family rooms" with balconies. The price of the room included breakfast and airport pick-up/dropoff, both of which were on-time and took less than 30 minutes.

We didn't need a hotel that was right on the beach. The last time we visited the Seminyak area, we had a choice between the Mutiara Bali and Kokonut Suites in Kerobokan. We wish we had chosen Mutiara Bali last time because the staff are better trained, more restaurants are within walking distance, the pool is better, and maintenance of the facilities is much better. Everything worked.

Location
From the hotel it is a 5-minute walk along paved roads past other boutique hotels to popular restaurants such as Cafe Bali, Kaizan, Nirvana, Chandi, Ultimo, and Trattoria on Jl. Oberoi (leave the Mutiara hotel, turn right, and take the next right to reach Jl. Oberoi). We had a memorable Indonesian-fusion dinner (be sure to make reservations) in the air-conditioned wine room at Chandi Restaurant, and we recommend the food and service. The cook, Pak Agung, is Balinese with years of experience in the U.S. Watch out for the prices at Mini-marts: they're about 35% higher than at Circle-K.

Breakfast
The free breakfast is served from 7-10 in an open pavilion that has about 12 tables. Guests order from a menu of options (American breakfast, continental breakfast, English breakfast, full Irish breakfast, oatmeal/rice porridge, alternative breakfast), and the food is brought to the table. Usually they bring a small extra treat such as fried banana, fried apple, fried tempe. The other guests at breakfast were young and old couples, no families.

Quiet enjoyment
The hotel rooms are in two-storied buildings that surround the pool on three sides. Our room 133 was in a quiet location at the far end of the pool. We heard the guests upstairs walking but the noise was not at all obtrusive. We heard no neighbor noise on either side. Once in a while a child would shout in the pool, but not for long, and not with other children. Part of the bathroom roof is open to the stars (protected by a screen), so we could hear all the noise of the street when we were in the bathroom. Yet there was no street noise in the room, and it was so quiet that we could hear the sound of water falling off the roof during an early morning rain.

Pool
The pool is long, somewhat narrow, and quite popular. At one end of the pool is an open-air fitness center. The pool is artistically lighted at night (see photos), and it is very popular among guests.

Room
Our room was large with a king-sized bed, plasma screen TV with HBO, Cinemax, Star Movies, and a refrigerator with freezer compartment. The room was simply and sparsely decorated. The bathroom is almost as large as the bedroom. It was clean and well maintained. Hot water was available immediately, and water pressure was good. There is a wardrobe in the bathroom entry area where sandals and an umbrella are kept. The coffee maker works well, and coffee was replenished faithfully.

Service
Service was generally friendly, efficient, and gracious. Rooms are cleaned quickly by teams of two or three men. The reception desk staff are helpful. Check in and check out was easy.

Wi-fi
The free wi-fi signal in the room was good. We often had to try several times to log in on the CBN Hotspot. Wi-fi can be slower during peak hours. There are two computers in the lobby for those who don't bring their own laptops.

We felt comfortable throughout our stay. In the envelope with our receipt, they slipped a couple of small Balinese face mast refrigerator magnets as momentos of the experience; nice touch. When we return, we will stay again at Mutiara Bali, remembering this relaxing vacation and the very reasonable room rate.
